Raglan twinning signs go up
6:02pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
RESIDENTS in one Monmouthshire village may have noticed that signs have now been placed at the entrances of the village alerting visitors to its twinning initiative.
Raglan was formally twinned with Parce-sur-Sarthe in France last year and signs are now in place to promote the links between the communities.
The initiative was led by Raglan Twinning Association with the support from Raglan Community Council.
Charles Fountain, chairman of Raglan Twinning Association said the initiative is going from strength to strength as the association is preparing for a contingent of 60 visitors from Parce to arrive in Raglan over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Mr Fountain added: “Many friendships have been forged over the past few years and we are looking forward to greeting our visitors.”
“Last year a group of Raglan residents visited Parcé and were entertained so well that the pressure is back on us this year. We are very grateful to the village’s businesses, organisations and community council who have helped support the trip.”
The association is still looking for Raglan based families to host one or two visitors during the trip. If you can help please call 01291 690420 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
